More About

Family Dentistry

Regular dental check-ups and hygiene practices are essential to keep our teeth and gums healthy. When it comes to maintaining the oral health of our families, family dentistry is crucial. Parleys Creek Dental in Salt Lake City, Utah, provides family dentistry for all patients aged 18 months to 55 years and older. With our patient-focused care, we are devoted to caring for every patient, no matter their age, through family dentistry.

What is Family Dentistry?

Family dentistry is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the entire family’s oral health. From routine check-ups to oral surgeries, family dentistry covers various services that cater to individuals of all ages. Family dentistry aims to prevent dental problems and treat existing ones by identifying and addressing them as early as possible.

Family Dentistry Services

Taking care of your family and their oral health is important for a healthy life. At Parleys Creek Dental, we provide a variety of procedures to help you and your family, including:

Preventative care includes regular dental check-ups, cleanings, fluoride treatments, and X-rays. These procedures help identify potential dental issues before they become more significant problems and can help keep your family’s oral health on track.

Dr. Clinton Sorensen also provides restorative procedures for those needing more than preventative services. These include fillings, crowns, and bridges. These procedures help restore damaged teeth to their natural state, preventing further damage and improving the overall look of the patient’s smile.

Another essential aspect of family dentistry is emergency dental care. Accidents happen; when they do, it’s important to have a dentist who can handle unexpected dental emergencies. Dr. Sorensen provides emergency dental services such as dental repairs, root canals, and tooth extractions.

Dr. Sorensen specializes in cosmetic dental procedures that enhance a patient’s smile. These include teeth whitening, braces, and veneers. Cosmetic procedures aim to improve the way teeth look, boosting confidence and helping patients feel their best.

Family Dentistry: Perfect For the Whole Family

Convenience and Comprehensive Care

Family dentistry offers convenience to families by providing comprehensive dental care to individuals of all ages. Dr. Sorensen and his excellent dental team are trained to treat various dental issues affecting individuals at different stages of life, from developing baby teeth to losing permanent teeth. We offer preventive care, routine check-ups, restorative procedures, and cosmetic treatments, all under one roof.

Familiarity and Trust
Dr. Clinton Sorensen provides a level of familiarity and trust to families that is often absent from other healthcare facilities. Children who grow up visiting the same family dentist tend to have an easier time with their dental visits as they have developed a good rapport with the dentist. Moreover, family dentists are better equipped to understand the dental history of each family member, enabling them to provide customized dental care that meets their unique needs.
Early Detection of Dental Issues
Family dentists not only treat existing dental issues but also help to prevent future ones. They perform routine examinations and screenings to detect dental problems before they become more severe and expensive. Early detection of gum disease, cavities, and other dental issues can help prevent the need for invasive treatments and save the family a significant amount of money on dental procedures.
Education and Prevention
We ensure the proper education for families on appropriate oral hygiene practices and offers preventive measures to ensure that their patient's teeth are healthy. Education and prevention can be especially beneficial for children just learning about the importance of oral hygiene and elderly family members who may be at a higher risk of developing dental issues due to age-related conditions.
Emergency Dental Care
Finally, we offer emergency dental care to his patients. Dental emergencies can happen anytime, and having a trusted family dentist who can provide immediate care can reassure families. Knowing that their dentist can provide prompt dental care in an emergency can give families peace of mind.
